My Little Expat Kitchen.+Add.Feed Info1000FOLLOWERS
I'm Magdalini. I am from Greece, born and bred in Athens, and for the last eight years I have been living in The Hague, Netherlands with my also Greek boyfriend, S. I share recipes and stories about Greek food with the world. The recipes featured on her blog range from traditional Greek recipes (naturally), to modern international ones.
I’ve never met anyone in my life who would say no to a cookie if offered one, and as a person who likes to bake and offer cookies to anyone who would take them, I have to say that there can never be too many cookie recipes in anyone’s baking arsenal.
This one deserves a place in yours.
It’s a butter cookie but not made with any old butter, but with goat’s milk butter. Greeks use goat’s
This Monday, it will be Kathara Deutera (Clean Monday), the first day of the Greek Orthodox Lent, and the day when the table will be set for a feast of seafood (octopus, shrimp, mussels, calamari), taramosalata, lots of dips and salads, legume dishes (fava, my favorite), lagana (Greek, Lenten, yeasted flat bread) of course, and halva, both sesame and semolina.
I wish I was back home in
I’m definitely not one to celebrate Valentines’ day. The idea of celebrating my relationship on demand together with millions of others is a rather unappealing thought.
It wasn’t always the case, though. When I was a teenager/very young adult, it was one of the most anticipated days of the year. I got to celebrate it with my boyfriend and expected a card and flowers from him; I expected
This is the easiest Greek pie there is. A pie that doesn’t include a lot of ingredients and that’s super quick to make. A pie that should definitely become part of your cooking repertoire.
It’s thin, crispy, fluffy and soft all at the same time, full of cheesy flavor from the feta, buttery and so incredibly delicious that you really can’t stop eating it. I can’t, for sure.
Raw brownies; because sometimes you don’t have time to turn the oven on, regardless of the fact that it would have been a very welcomed heat source.
Because you want something healthier and more nutritious than your regular brownie. Something that’s guilt free and less sweet without, however, missing out on great flavor and texture, because these raw brownies have both.
My day started weird on Monday. I didn’t hear the alarm go off because I was having such an intense dream I didn’t even realize it was going off for over ten minutes before my boyfriend finally woke me up.
I didn’t have time to have breakfast before an appointment with my physiotherapist— I have a sprained arm that hurts like hell, even as I write this now, which I shouldn’t be doing
I have a confession to make. I love peanut butter and if I could eat it every day, I would. Alas, it’s calorific so I can’t, or I would have to exercise seven days a week and I can barely handle two, but that’s another topic for another day. Back to peanut butter.
Yes, I love the stuff, and a long time ago, I was somewhat addicted to commercial peanut butter, of the unhealthy kind. I
A little while ago, I made these brownies for the first time. I love chestnuts and I tend to use them in savory and sweet dishes regularly, especially during the autumn and winter months, but never had I used them before in brownies. It was a revelation.
Chestnut and chocolate is, unsurprisingly, a match made in heaven, and these brownies are a shining example of this match. They are
Happy New Year! Happy and Healthy 2018! May it bring to you all that you wish for and more!
Yesterday, on the first day of the year, I cooked, a lot. Greek slow-cooked leg of lamb with potatoes and this fudge. Because I hadn’t made a single sweet chocolate dessert throughout the holidays and I was feeling deprived.
This is the easiest chocolate fudge and the most delicious to boot.
The Christmas tree is finally up! We trimmed it yesterday evening and my home feels Christmassy and festive and of course I’m already knee deep in holiday baking. I made melomakarona the other day, my all time favorite Greek Christmas cookies, and I plan on making kourabiedes very soon, but today I made another type of cookie that’s become a tradition in my home during the holidays, shortbread.
